The Arabian Nights

"A man farts accidentally and so excuses himself from the dinner table and runs away to India forever out of embarrassment.
These are the stories that will last through time, people.

Also now finally starts Sindbad!"

Frank Herbert
“Revenge is for children and the emotionally retarded.”
frank herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune

Ursula K. Le Guin
“The sun itself was hidden, but there was a glitter on the horizon, almost like the dazzle of the crystal walls of the Undertomb, a kind of joyous shimmering off on the edge of the world.

"What is that?' the girl said, and he: "The sea.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Tombs of Atuan

Hugh MacLennan
“In the Thirties all of us who were young had been united by anger and the obviousness of our plight; in the war we had been united by fear and the obviousness of the danger. But now, prosperous under the bomb, we all seemed to have become atomized. Wherever I looked I saw people trying to live private lives for themselves and their families. Nobody asked the big questions any more. Why think, when the thing to be thought about is so huge it is impossible to think about it? Why ask where you are going, when you know you can’t stop even if you wish? Why ask why, when it does no good to know why?”
Hugh MacLennan, The Watch that Ends the Night

Robert Merle
“Never go to sea without a porpoise”
Robert Merle, The Day of the Dolphin

Ursula K. Le Guin
“A dark hand had let go its lifelong hold upon her heart. But she did not feel joy, as she had in the mountains. She put her head down in her arms and cried, and her cheeks were salt and wet. She cried for the waste of her years in bondage to a useless evil. She wept in pain, because she was free.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Tombs of Atuan
